Maybe the first animated anti-smoking campaign 1915

Check out what I discovered on YouTube.

It's anti-smoking cartoon from 1915. Perhaps the first one of its kind, certainly among the earliest public service messages ever produced through animation.

Some 45 years later, animation is doing just the opposite...

Boy, Fred Flintstone sure liked Winston cigarettes. Yet another smoking commercial.




And here's a commercial for Kent cigarettes from around the same time.
